  1. Little by little, I hope to be able to paint some new version of some of my old figures!
  2. So I was feeling a bit nostalgic, alongside of the affection I already hold for old school miniatures, so I've decided to begin "repainting" some old figures I'd done way back when, I'm going to say in 1983 or before/after. I graduated high school in 1986 and after that totally forgot about miniatures until maybe around 2004. Anyhow, I've repainted Frito the Thief, a Grenadier model I had when I was young. With the new version, I did have to resculpt the nose because it was flattened by time. My other issue was whether I wanted to keep the same color scheme or do something different. Ultimately I stayed very similiarly with the clothing color scheme, but ended up changing the skin tone and hair color. I kept an orange turban, but ended up muting the color a tad. So here's the modern version: and now the original version, painted sometime in the eighties: and then a few side by side comparisons: So what do you think, any progress over the last thirty- odd years? I've got a bunch of these that I think I'm going to do as time permits. They really are some very fun miniatures to paint. The proportions aren't perfect, but they really do have lots of personality!
  3. I usually thin my paints with water, so use white paint with a little bit of water but not enough to not have control of where it goes. Does white liner actually exist?
  4. I think once you get the dark brown dot in a good spot, it's usually easier to get the colored dot in top of it because you already have a point to aim for.
  5. Hi All, So for those that pay the least bit of attention to what I paint, you may have noticed that I paint mostly Ral Partha figures, which is a brand I really do enjoy quite a lot. I've been painting figures for their online catalogue for a number of years, and I just recently tried my hand at my first little tutorial, which was posted over at their site. If you are at all curious, you could find it here: http://www.ralpartha.com/index.php/blog/119-painting-guide-eyes-and-faces It is by no means the end-all, be-all of painting eyes, but just shows the way I typically approach painting eyes with four recent examples of figures that I've done. I think it almost feels like a WIP for four different figures. So anyways, have a look, hope you enjoy it, and hopefully somebody somewhere can get a little bit of eye-painting inspiration!
  6. All the shields are extremely cool !
  7. So ever have one of those nights you wake up all the sudden with painting on your mind? That happened to me last night around three so got up and worked on this guy's finishing touches. I'd done the metal in the afternoon. Now I worked on the gold, the dart and a jewel on his sword. Do you guys see the poison on his dart?
  8. You can definitely see the eerie green glow, very cool!
  9. So got a little more done tonight. Time for bed but got everything except metals and gems figures out.
  10. So now that I start working more on this little Grenadier thief, why not turn this into a WIP?
  11. Very cool, I want to try to play with translucent figures some day and figure out how to paint them.
  12. Very nice! The translucency gives a nice effect.
  13. Where did the runaway mage come from? I've seen the you tube video with that guy but can't remember his name.
  14. So I've got him started, I'll show him off when I get him done!
